Sofitel French Month: Tour de France Buffet at Spiral Manila

Sofitel Philippine Plaza celebrates the French month with grandeur as they line up events that will bring France closer to Manila.

The Tour de France is an annual multiple stage bicycle race primarily held in France, while also occasionally making passes through nearby countries. In Spiral you may experience this adventure through executive Chef Eric Costille's gastronomical experience. He will prepare an array of authentic French cuisine from different regions of France from Nice to Bordeaux to Brittany to Savoy!
